Land of Neves: The Break Through is a work of traditional fantasy fiction penned by author Jason Bourque, and forms the second novel in the Land of Neves series. Following the events of Book One: The Birth, the planet Neves has already seen its tribes warring and fracturing amongst themselves, but now the Overtakers have come to fulfill Dragnor’s quest for destruction and domination. As if this threat to the world wasn’t enough, Ossin the Tyrant takes the fracturing as an opportunity to assert supremacy and gain power over all the warring tribes. It is up to the forces of good to reignite unity and fight back against the darkness but at a terrible cost.
This is very much a tale with balance as the underlying theme, so although there is a definite presence of good versus evil, it’s interesting to see how author Jason Bourque addresses the balance and necessity of both in his fantasy world. Neves is a beautifully described place, even on its many decimated battlefields, with atmosphere oozing from every page and making the reading experience highly sensory. As one would expect in a good second novel, the characters are given room to breathe, bond with and sometimes betray each other in quiet scenes which are well arranged amongst the action and fantasy violence that abounds in a planet at war. The plotline ends with a satisfying but clearly temporary conclusion, a suitable stop-gap as we await book three. Overall, Land of Neves: The Break Through is a really enjoyable fantasy war novel that’s sure to please fans of the genre.

Dragnor, the planet’s King and Keeper of the Staff wrecks havoc and animosity towards the Seven Tribes of Neves.
